Ricosta Children's Footwear - A Positive Approach to Life

Ricosta, a family-owned and -run company since it was established in 1969, seek to combine traditional values of craftsmanship with the promotion of innovative technique in the creation of their superlative range of children's footwear. Developed in close partnership with specialists such as paediatricians and orthopaedists, along with parents, shoes manufactured by Ricosta are of the highest quality standard and are made using envi­ron­men­tally-friendly production techniques and ecologically-sourced materials.

Ricosta was founded by Ronald Rieker as a children's shoe factory in Donaueschingen, Germany and offered a selection of toddler's and babies designer shoes in a variety of sizes. The quality and obvious dedication to craftsmanship that had gone into each pair did not go unnoticed and Rieker soon had more orders than he could handle, causing him to quickly and successfully expand.

The company thrived as it passed down through the generations, winning the coveted German Leather Goods Prize in 1993. Just one year later, Ricosta launched their patented lightweight polyurethane sole which, free of any harmful bonding agents, was widely considered to be a pioneering innovation. After these successes, Ricosta went on to receive the German Leather Goods prize another four times as well as a host of other plaudits and recognitions at design awards around the world.

Currently, Ricosta have dedicated production plants in their native Germany as well as in Poland and Hungary. These plants are run by a combined total of around 800 staff who help the company turn out more than 2m pairs of children's shoes every year, taking Ricosta's total worldwide sales to in excess of 80m pairs. In the future, the company seek to continue their commitment of providing 'quality without compromise' while setting 'standards in production and creativity'. To this end, Ricosta invest heavily in research & development strategies and continue to work closely with medical institutes, podiatry specialists, child psychologists, fashion designers and more to ensure their shoes always offer a 'positive approach to life'.
